native bee workshop

Stephen Curran

Bundaberg Branch Wide Bay Native Bee Association

We would like to thank Bundaberg Now, particularly Emma who liaised with us, for the wonderful article about our 26th November 2022 native bee workshop. The response to the coverage for the workshop, presented by experienced beekeeper Ian Driver, was overwhelming. So much so, that an additional morning workshop was organised. In addition to these two workshops, there have been even more enquiries – enough to fill another two workshops which we are hoping to hold early in the New Year. The majority of these enquiries have been due to the article published in Bundaberg Now, and we sincerely thank all involved for the support given to our Branch of the Australian Native Bee Association.

I just wanted to take the time to thank you both so much for your coverage of the Bundaberg Festival of Dance 💗 both the article and video story gave such a positive reflection of the event and really expressed exactly what we hope people to see in the Festival – a fun and vibrant event that is accepting and encouraging of everyone.

Moore Park Beach resident

I have read many articles on Bundaberg Now and was pleasantly surprised to be contacted by Media Officer Ashley Schipper who was interested in writing an article about my photograph of a Brushtail Possum using an old Kookaburra's nest as a shelter at Moore Park Beach, Bundaberg. Having the opportunity to share my unique experiences with others was a wonderful opportunity that I am grateful for and Ashley did an amazing job publishing the story.

Bundaberg Pottery Club

I just wanted to thank you for your coverage of our Sculptural Poles Project prior to last weekend. Morgan did a good job with her candid photos of the group at work and the result was most pleasing. Everyone was most excited and thought they looked good! I am sure your coverage contributed to the attendance of over 70 people and the success of our Launch. We appreciate your interest and support.

On behalf of the Bundaberg Police we would like to thank Bundaberg Now for the article about our new local “MyPolice Bundaberg” Facebook page. Since the article was posted our engagements have increased dramatically meaning we are reaching more members of the community with important crime prevention information, current events and positive news stories.

I'm so grateful for Bundaberg Now writing an article regarding my business Fairytale Endings. I’ve had such a great response and the team at Bundaberg Now were so nice and accommodating.

Michael Kiss

Principal, Avoca State School

Avoca State School held a very special event whereby we had children speak to an Astronaut on the International Space Station. Bundaberg Now was one of the premier media groups to cover the story and they left no stone unturned to report the event in all of its glory. This event was a “once in a lifetime” opportunity for some children to reach for the stars and dream of magnificent futures! Bundaberg Now created a wonderful visual story of the event which featured footage from the night including the point of radio contact and interviews with participants. As Principal of Avoca State School I want to express my gratitude to Bundaberg Now for the promotional and celebratory service they provided for this event!

Geoff Strube

President, Bundaberg Tennis

Tennis Bundaberg had great stories to tell the people of Bundaberg but no voice. That's where the talented writers and editors at Bundaberg Now were able to help. When they heard we had some of the oldest clay courts in Queensland where legends like Rod Laver honed their skills or that we wanted to launch a brand new game called Pickleball they told us they love good news stories. With a little bit of cleverness, they took our message and turned it into an internet sensation.

NARDOO Nursery

NARDOO Nursery is a not-for-profit enterprise whose profits go toward people with a disability engaging in our community. We had no budget for advertising but wanted to let people know about our nursery. From the very start Bundaberg Now has been so supportive and has written marvellous stories that have showcased our nursery and what we do. Without Bundaberg Now we would never have achieved the wonderful customer base we have now and have the ability to help support our clients with disability.
